Draft Scout Leonard Hankerson News
03/11/15 - WR Leonard Hankerson left the Redskins for the Falcons Wednesday (March 11). He signed a one-year contract worth $1 million that includes a $255,000 signing bonus.
Hankerson, 6-2, 211 pounds, was originally selected by the Redskins in the third round (79th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Miami. He has played in 31 games with 14 starts and posted 81 receptions for 1,081 yards with six touchdowns during his career. Hankerson played in one game last season, battling back from an injury he suffered at the end of the 2013 season.
He played in 10 games with seven starts and caught 30 passes for 375 yards with three touchdowns in 2013. Hankerson enjoyed his best season as a pro in 2012, playing in all 16 games while tallying career highs in receptions (38), yards (543), and touchdowns (three). His first career touchdown came on a 68-yard reception against St. Louis that year. As a rookie in 2011, Hankerson played in four games, starting two, and caught 13 passes for 163 yards. He posted his first career 100-yard game against Miami in Week 1, becoming the first Redskins rookie receiver to have 100 yards receiving in a single game since Rod Garner in 2011.
03/05/15 - WR Leonard Hankerson, unrestricted FA update, had eight catches for 106 yards in his second start as a rookie in 2011 but suffered a season-ending hip injury and was never as effective again. Although he was a rare Redskins receiver with size, he didn't catch a single ball for new coach Jay Gruden in 2014 and won't return.
11/05/14 - WR Leonard Hankerson's rookie season of 2011 ended after just four games because of a hip injury that required surgery. The receiver's third season ended with a torn ACL and LCL in Week 10. On Tuesday, 13 days shy of a year since he ripped up his left knee in Philadelphia, Hankerson was activated from the physically unable to perform list.
"I haven't played in a year so (during the bye week), I'm going to work: running routes and doing all the things I can," Hankerson said. "I feel good. I'm 100 percent. I've been doing everything, no setbacks."
At 6-feet-2, Hankerson is two inches taller than any of Washington's other six receivers, but how much playing time he'll remains a big question since rookie Ryan Grant (five), speedster Aldrick Robinson (one) and former starter Santana Moss (zero) combined for just six catches during the first nine games.
11/04/14 - WR Leonard Hankerson was activated from reserve/physically unable to perform by the Redskins Tuesday (Nov. 4). Hankerson (6-2, 211) was originally selected by the Redskins in the third round (79th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft. He has appeared in 30 career games with 14 starts, recording 81 receptions for 1,081 yards and six receiving touchdowns.
10/22/14 - WR Leonard Hankerson is hoping to begin his season soon. Hankerson tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last season during a Nov. 17 game at Philadelphia and his rehabilitation process continued well into the summer.
Washington put Hankerson on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list to start the season and he has continued working his way back from the injury. Now, he feels he's ready to play again after returning to practice last week. But he must be added to the active 53-man roster first and Washington has. "No soreness in the knee at all," Hankerson said. "I feel good out there, I'm out there running around. I don't feel like I missed a beat with 11 months off. ... No doubt at all I could (play against Dallas)."
